Firstly at the SNP Party Conference, then today in London, Nicola Sturgeon has called for Scotland to be a part of the Northern Ireland "Backstop", meaning Scotland remains in the customs union while the rest of the UK does not.
I provided a response for PoliticsHome on why this is simply not acceptable:
"Nicola Sturgeon knows that having a separate backstop for Scotland would mean having regulatory and custom checks at the border with England.
“Nearly two thirds of Scotland’s trade is with the rest of the United Kingdom, putting up barriers to this will only hinder the flow of goods within the UK and add layers of unnecessary bureaucracy. It is unacceptable for businesses and will damage the integrity of the UK’s internal market.
“Nicola isn’t about getting a good Brexit deal for Scotland. Nicola and the SNP are all about disrupting and frustrating the Brexit process purely to help further their obsessive pursuit of independence. The conference this week is clearly showing that.”
